Inaugural Capital Cuisine Restaurant Week Showcases Local Tallahassee Delicacies
Tallahassee, Fla. — Celebrating the diverse selection of culinary delights available in the Capital City, Visit Tallahassee is proud to announce the inaugural Capital Cuisine Restaurant Week, April 12 – 22, 2012. Participating restaurants will offer specially selected prix fixe menus during both lunch and dinner, featuring two to three course meals priced at $15 or $25.
During the culinary extravaganza, patrons will dine their way through Tallahassee, exploring the tastes of the area’s most popular neighborhood eateries from casual fare pizza and fresh seafood to farm-to-table and white tablecloth venues. As varied as Tallahassee’s ever-changing landscape — from rolling hills to the 78 miles of Spanish moss-draped canopied roads — is the diverse menu of authentic regional cuisine, fine dining and international fare.
“Tallahassee’s restaurant scene is evolving and we are proud to highlight the incredible dining options available to residents and visitors alike,” said Lee Daniel, Visit Tallahassee’s executive director. “The region has an array of local delicacies and we look forward to showcasing the world class food available in Tallahassee.
Capital Cuisine is part of Visit Tallahassee’s Natural Tallahassee campaign, which highlights the outdoors, culinary delights and numerous events and celebrations taking place in the region March through May. The restaurant week will span 10 days, giving diners opportunities to take advantage of Capital Cuisine deals and bring exposure to the area’s restaurants and locally produced foods.
Participating restaurants range from the casual and fun Momo’s Pizza, Po’Boys Creole Café and Barnacle Bill’s to the intricate menus and sophisticated ambiance of A la Provence, Georgio’s and Avenue Eat & Drink, just to name a few.
A fusion of cosmopolitan flair and charming personality defines the spirit of Tallahassee, Florida’s Capital City — where it all comes together for visitors. Situated just off Florida’s northern I-10 corridor, stretching along the state’s Panhandle, Tallahassee is a place where college town meets cultural center, politics meets performing arts and history meets nature — a place where the vibrancy of what to do is matched only by the city’s inviting hospitality.
